First-party cookies

Cookies can be used to track internet activity after the user has left a website. These are typically facilitated by organisations external to the site being visited and are generally known as ‘third-party’ cookies. They usually have a long life with several months being quite common. They are ‘harvested’ and ‘refreshed’ whenever the user visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used.


We may use Google Analytics to measure and analyse visitor information related to our website. For that purpose, your IP address, Internet traffic data and data on your browser type and computer or device are collected using several cookies (_utma, _utmc, utmb, utmz):

Third-party cookies and microsites

The domain specified in the cookie relates to the cookie’s owner (the “party”), who has set the cookie cookies will have the School domain specified in a cookie. These are first-party cookies.

We use some cookies. These are used to analyse your browsing for future improvements and to provide specific useful functions such as storing your preferences or consents.

A third-party cookie is set when you visit a site but the domain named in the cookie sent to your computer is not the same as the website. For example, if you visit, you may also visit a different website. Even though you have visited, the cookie will be from the other site.

External Media

We sometimes embed media content from external websites. Pages with embedded media content, for example, our prospectus from or videos from YouTube, may provide cookies from these websites.
